In brief: HATHA YOGA
Look into a beginners hatha yoga class.
It consists of a series of "poses" that works on strength and flexibility of the whole body but especially the "core". Doing stretches from a book or handout is like learning to be a doctor only from a book. You need someone to instruct you to make sure you are doing the exercises/stretches correctly. Otherwise, you may cause injury and defeat the purpose.
